In preparation for the Big Game ,the CLEAR Dream Match beneficiary Tuloy Sa Don Bosco Foundation in Alabang, hosted the CLEAR Dream Clinic and Draft last August 11.
Conducted by The Younghusband Football Academy (TYFA) in collaboration with CLEAR Men, the morning clinic consisted of various stations highlighting different football skills, capped off by scrimmages at the end.
“Having a clinic for the children of Tuloy and the fans who have supported us is a pleasure for us,” Phil Younghusband said.
James and Phil Younghusband have always stated that promoting football throughout the nation was one of the main reasons they moved to the Philippines in 2010.
James says, “Phil and I have had the privilege of making a living out of playing the sport we love, we just want to show that other kids with a passion for football can do the same.”
The brothers Younghusband who both played for Chelsea FC, one of the largest football clubs in the world, established TYFA in January 2010. Both have UEFA coaching credentials with Phil having a level 2 UEFA coaching badge and James having a level 1 UEFA coaching badge.
